Number one ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenkos manager, Vadim Finkelstein, recently spoke regarding the potential of Fedor signing in the UFC and their thoughts on Dana Whites attitude:
It depends on UFC. We would like to cooperate with them. Everything depends on them, their diplomacy. It would be possible if they are flexibleâ€¦ I donâ€™t want to compete with UFC, I want to co-operate with them. I think it could be a winning solution for everybody â€“ for us, for them, and for MMA fans.
Thatâ€™s his character, [Dana White] just loves to call names. He didnâ€™t say bad things about M-1 only, there were a lot of situations where he was harsh. It makes me glad when Dana White talks about us. I respect the UFC, theyâ€™ve done a lot for the development of MMA, so I can pardon them such attacks. We respect him and let him grumble.
